Sypha Nadon - Threnody for Zumb Zumb [plague007]
, kind hands
This, Sypha Nadon's second full-length release, marks a new phase in his musical development. The familiar elements are still here - the signature off-kilter melodies and savage noise breaks - but the album is more unified than previous efforts. Threnody is also SN's most minimalistic work thus far, allowing simple patterns and complex textures to unravel over time, revealing their inner richness.

“Threnody for Zumb Zumb”- Funeral music for the Crooked Universe, a collection of Lar-Vi death knells. The first Sypha Nadon transmission consisting entirely of new material, made especially for this collection, rather than older songs reassembled for a new generation of listeners. The music this time is heavily rhythmic, exquisitely beat-driven, audio vevers constructed to invoke sonic Lwa. At the same time, it acts as a manifesto composed of songs, with an important message for the troubled human soul: dump the rubbish, kill the violence, pay loving tribute at the altar of Kind Hands. Sacred music has never been this much fun!
